H is for Heastsease Home. Heartsease Home was a foster care agency for young women ages 16 – 20. I worked there for about 18 years. I helped planned recreational activities for the residents. I also assisted the residents in completing their life skills curriculum training materials.
I stopped working at Heartsease Home about 10 years ago. I still keep in touch with several of my old coworkers and former residents. I hope I was a positive influence to both the staff and residents during the years I worked there.
I have many memories of those years. I learned a lot about the behavior of teenaged girls. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to work with the same age group today. Cell phones were not as available for widespread use during the years I worked at Heartsease Home. Internet use was also not as common and not frequently used by the residents ten years ago.. I am very fortunate that I had the opportunity to work at Heartsease Home.
I am basing some of my blog posts topics on the alphabet. For more information go to http://accidental-knitter.blogspot.com
